The Eclipse of the satellite began on Friday at 21.24 GMT and lasted until 1.19 GMT Saturday. It has lasted so long due to the fact that the Moon was close to apogee (the point of maximum distance from Land) and were significantly less than the shadow cast by the Earth.

!!!I present to you!!!

When the Moon came fully in the shadow of the planet, it was painted a crimson red color.

The Eclipse could be seen from all over Russia, even in the far East it was noticeable, but early in the morning. Best lunar Eclipse visible in the North Caucasus, the Caspian depression and the southern Urals.
